According to a report of hepatitis alliance approximately 300 million people are effected with viral hepatitis actually don't have knowledge about it. In a way 9 people out of every 10,000 are effected and they are are source to spread this disease. There is no country in the world which don't have the patients of Hepatitis.
To know more about hepatitis, what it is and how it spreads we consult with the famous professor Dr. Muhammad Shoaib Shafi who is the Counseler of Pakistan's Physicians and Surgeons and also the controller examination of CPSP and Regional Director of COSP and also served as the director general of International Relations.
Dr. Shafi who is also a physician of Stomach and liver told us that Viral infections of the liver that are classified as hepatitis include hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E. A different virus is responsible for each type of virally transmitted hepatitis. Hepatitis A is always an acute, short-term disease, while hepatitis B, C, and D are most likely to become ongoing and chronic. Hepatitis E is usually acute but can be particularly dangerous in pregnant women.
Hepatitis A is caused by an infection with the hepatitis A virus (HAV). This type of hepatitis is most commonly transmitted by consuming food or water contaminated by feces from a person infected with hepatitis A.
Hepatitis B is transmitted through contact with infectious body fluids, such as blood, vaginal secretions, or semen, containing the hepatitis B virus (HBV). Injection drug use, having sex with an infected partner, or sharing razors with an infected person increase your risk of getting hepatitis B. Hepatitis C comes from the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Hepatitis C is transmitted through direct contact with infected body fluids, typically through injection drug use and sexual contact.
Hepatitis D also called delta hepatitis, hepatitis D is a serious liver disease caused by the hepatitis D virus (HDV). HDV is contracted through direct contact with infected blood. Hepatitis D is a rare form of hepatitis that only occurs in conjunction with hepatitis B infection. The hepatitis D virus can’t multiply without the presence of hepatitis B. Hepatitis E is a waterborne disease caused by the hepatitis E virus (HEV). Hepatitis E is mainly found in areas with poor sanitation and typically results from ingesting fecal matter that contaminates the water supply.
He told that most of victims of hepatitis are due to the carelessness and unawareness of the patients. He said that the medicines of all the types are very common in the market and easily available in the federal and provincial health centers. He said that now you don't need to have a full course of injections, now the medicines are very much effective and cheap. If a patients cooperate for 5 to 6 months he could beat hepatitis easily.
He also stressed on the proverb "Prevention is better than cure". He said that Cleanliness is very important to prevent this disease. Cleanliness is half the faith. Our Prophet (PBUH) has stressed so much on the importance of cleanliness. It is the part of our faith. Our every action related to worship of Allah is connected with cleanliness. So it is very important to be clean not only to get away from diseases but also to get ourself close to Allah.
